Josh Gordon Everything Thread

Recommended Posts

Still no verifiable sources, but a few fantasy expert twitter handles are just starting to mention it. Found that interesting...

 

WaiverWired‏ @WaiverWired_  Sep 28

We have reason to believe that Josh Gordon will be reinstated within the week. Grab him NOW if he's still there. Not 100% sure but worth it

Josh Gordon reinstatement imminent? Rumors swirling. Worth a speculative add in deep leagues. Accumulated rust, but the UPSIDE!

Hearing rumors of a potential Josh Gordon reinstatement coming soon. Upside warrants an add in deeper leagues. #FantasyFootball #Browns

 

FFN Mike Agrusa @FauxFBMike

As if today doesn’t feel enough like autumn, Josh Gordon reinstatement rumors swirling in the air. As is tradition.

I'd like to believe that Brad Evans on Yahoo has more connections than us Gordon fanboys, so hopefully the rumors are true.  But if his rumors are just Gordon's IG and Snapchats, then yeah, not worth much . Guess he is a hold for now.

Pffft.  It's September 29th.  No verifiable reports of anything.  Where is that stupid Reddit guy whose cousin is friends with a guy who knows a guy that was in rehab with Gordon? 

At this point, is he just jerking everybody's chain?  Post a cryptic instagram picture lying on grass with a football next to him because he knows everybody will be wondering?  If Gordon was serious about coming back, why doesn't he just put out a public statement saying "I have submitted papers to be reinstated."  I really don't understand why all the cryptic messages.  Serious question here, and not looking for silly marijuana jokes.  Is he being handcuffed by the league and told that he can't say anything about his situation?  And if so, why?

Serious answer.  Josh Gordon is probably not concerned with your fantasy football team.  If he did submit his reinstatement paperwork, I doubt he will hold a press conference to announce it.  I suspect it will be submitted.  Commissioner Goodell will take up to 60 days to review.  Then an announcement will be made either reinstating or rejecting the application.  Now info may leak out along the way, but we may hear nothing until the NFL makes their formal announcement announcing their decision.

Evans actually clarified later on:

I honestly have no inside information. Would love to see him back on the field, however.

Replying to @YahooNoise

Added Josh Gordon you really think he will play this year?

 

I think he personally doesn't have inside information, but maybe he's hearing indirect rumors in whatever network of contacts he's in.

Of course he cares. The inky people that have supported him and still believe in him are his fantasy owners. Even the Buena seemed to have given up on him. A press conference is esa y what he needs too. It will put public pressure on Goodell to make a speedy decision. A decision to finally give Gordon some justice after all that the NFL has put this young man through for smoking a J and maybe cannonballing it with a brewski. Meanwhile Brian Cushing Wil be back soon. And it can't be before Josh Gordon is back. That isn't justice. That is systematic racism at it'sworst and the NFL doesn't need that kind of attention. Not right now. Not ever.

It's getting pretty late in the week for me to get the 11/172/2 TDs I was promised for week 4.

My bad. :( 

 

ETA: it was 7/174/2, but close enough ;)

NFL reporter buddy of mine tells me on good authority that this is happening.  Browns have something arranged.  Should be in the next 21 days.

Pretty sure Gordon being reinstated is the first sign of The Rapture.

If this dude had actual info, he'd skyrocket in popularity on Twitter and likely be on ESPN talking about this.

Are we really to believe any "I know someone that knows somebody" report?  I get that there is a lack of information, but if this was truly news, don't you think one of the reliable NFL sources would have tweeted about it?  An NFL reporter is really going to keep this under wraps, choosing to remain behind the scenes rather than to try to break a story Adam Schefter style and take all the credit and gain the followers?  Yeah, uh huh.

I'm hoping for good news too, but if it takes 21 days for news to come out - that's another 4 missed games counting tomorrow, I'm not sure if I'm going to hang on until week 8 at the earliest.  If he gets traded, he needs another week or 2 to get acclimated.  So now perhaps week 10.

I'm as excited as the next guy at the possibility of having Gordon in my lineup, but if it's week 10, I might as well pick up David Johnson.

I find it hilarious that this topic has probably cost the FBG community hundreds, if not thousands of dollars in add/drop/trade fees.

painful, but hilarious.

Why not believe them? They have no gain in lying about it. They only gain if the info ends up being true. This is a lock, imo.

Anonymous reporters don't gain anything from their info being true.  If they really believed it, they would want their name all over it.

Sometimes there are legal obstacles that folks need to wait on before publicizing. I’ll leave it at that.

Yeah, who is this new guy with no board rep, @Otis?  Call me when we have someone who's been here more than 20 years and has over 75,000 posts... or actually owns the board already.

what sort of legal obstacles would a reporter need to wait on? i trust you. you've been around a long time here. but i'm curious about your phrasing there... i could see the NFL & gordon & browns asking a reporter to keep something quiet since gordon didn't handle reinstatement all that well last time. i can see a scenario where he's currently "conditionally reinstated" and will be allowed to join the team pending a few weeks of clean piss tests every couple hours.

 

but i can't see "legal obstacles" for a reporter.

 

thoughts?

Those anonymous reports... What they have to gain is laughing at us idiots (yes me including) that believe those reports. Then we end up posting Vince McMahon gifs, talk about how he's gonna beast, and talk about how everyone else are idiots for not believing in Gordon. We are being played by these anonymous reports.

Your undying loyalty is admirable, but tough to believe at this point. And yes, I picked Gordon up weeks ago. I still don't believe more than rostering him.

Did he snapchat that? That hotel is less than a mile from the stadium.

Yes, starting to trend on some Cleveland boards as well as twitter.   In the midst of all of the crazy Gordon rumors, these latest tidbits at least have some semblance of substance and believability.

I believe it. No Uber driver is going to be willing to risk their credibility unless they are sure it was Gordon in their car. 

He probably IS at the hotel. The reddit thread has some internet sleuthing that shows JG's most recent snapchat with him in a hotel room that matches the layout of the hotel in Cleveland near the stadium. This doesn't prove a damn thing about him being reinstated or what's next of course but it's something.

Oh my, this is some good news after the devastating Cook and Carson injuries!  Just what I needed for my shell-shocked fantasy team.

Finally it seems like some substance to all the rumors.  The substance is just pictures of him in Cleveland, but that's much better than "My cousin knows a guy who knew a guy in rehab."

Let's keep the good vibes going!

Would be nice if we hear the good news soon since we have 402 pages. To a dyslexic person it may look like 420.

I can 100% confirm he is in Cleveland. 

As to what that means, we'll see.. But he's playing this season.

he's been fairly quiet on social since he got out of rehab. he was typically fairly active in the past and my guess is that the silence was part of some conditional reinstatement: stay quiet, piss in this cup every couple hours for a couple weeks and we'll see where we're at.

the fact he's suddenly being pretty open about arriving in cleveland (along with some vague posts around here by some trusted members) leads me to think we're getting pretty close to hearing about a full reinstatement or getting some real news soon.

Supposedly there's a press conference that Brown's will hold soon. Maybe we'll get a Gordon update 

Per PFT source, he has not applied for reinstatement yet.  :shrug:
